Acts 2:37-47. People want to know how to respond to Jesus and God’s work through the Holy Spirit and the Day of Pentecost. Peter’s still standing there, so he offers some guidance. He tells them to stop doing and thinking what they were doing and thinking and instead obey Jesus and recognize him as Messiah. He also tells them to be baptized. How’s that going to go over with a crowd that had no affection for Jesus just weeks earlier?
Matt Whitman believes in God and thinks things are funny. He was raised in Fort Collins, Colorado before moving to Chicago where he graduated from Trinity College and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He met his wife Camilla on his first day of college in his first class. They’ve got three kids together and now live in the mountains of beautiful western Wyoming where Matt works as the Senior Pastor of the Lander Evangelical Free Church. Matt’s a teach-straight-through-books-of-the-Bible kind of guy and uses his appreciation of history, humor, culture, and narrative to help people understand God’s Word. In addition to church and family, Matt throws a lot of time at filmmaking. He writes, acts, and directs and also hosts a YouTube program called The Ten Minute Bible Hour in which he teaches books of the Bible in a tight, informative, and funny format.
